I have been trying to load Generals and Generals 0 Hour onto my new Windows 7 OS. Each time the game will not play. I also tried to load my C&C First Decade discs with no luck. Can anyone advise if/how to play these games on Windows 7?? Thanks

It works for me. Also, seeing as it uses the same game engine as Battle for Middle earth, i don't see a reason why it wouldn't work.

Have you try to run it has Administrator?
If that doesnt work try to update your graphics sometimes that works. If I new more details like it goes to a black screen or black screen and freezes, just error detail would be great. Alot stuff dont run or will not start up for alot of reason, we just need more detail what it does when you try to is all.

*Windows 7*

PART 1:

Make a new text file in BOTH your "Generals Data" Folder AND your "Generals Zero Hour Data" Folder (Both Will be found in your My Documents....now in that file copy paste this:


AntiAliasing = 1
BuildingOcclusion = yes
DrawScrollAnchor =
DynamicLOD = no
ExtraAnimations = yes
GameSpyIPAddress = 0.0.0.0
Gamma = 50
IPAddress = 0.0.0.0
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
LanguageFilter = true
MaxParticleCount = 5000
MoveScrollAnchor =
MusicVolume = 55
Resolution = 1024 768
Retaliation = yes
SFX3DVolume = 79
SFXVolume = 71
ScrollFactor = 50
SendDelay = no
ShowSof****erEdge = yes
ShowTrees = yes
StaticGameLOD = Custom
TextureReduction = 0
UseAlternateMouse = no
UseCloudMap = yes
UseDoubleClickAttackMove = no
UseLightMap = yes
UseShadowDecals = yes
UseShadowVolumes = yes
VoiceVolume = 100


Save as "Options.ini" ( MAKE SURE ITS IN BOTH FOLDERS)


PART 2:

1) Go to your "All programs EA GAMEs Generals"

2)Right click on "1 Reg Nycklar"

3) Edit that file and swap all the text in it to this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREwow6432nodeEA GAMESCommand and Conquer Generals Zero Hour]
"DisplayName"="Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREwow6432nodeElectronic ArtsEA GamesCommand and Conquer Generals Zero Hour]
"Language"="english"
"UserDataLeafName"="Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data"
"Version"=dword:00010002
"MapPackVersion"=dword:00010000
"InstallPath"="CrogramEA GamesCommand Conquer GeneralsZero Hour"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREwow6432nodeElectronic ArtsEA GamesCommand and Conquer Generals Zero Hourergc]
@="********************"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREwow6432nodeElectronic ArtsEA GamesGenerals]
"Language"="english"
"InstallPath"="CrogramEA GamesCommand and Conquer Generals"
"MapPackVersion"=dword:00010000
"Version"=dword:00010007

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREwow6432nodeElectronic ArtsEA GamesGeneralsergc]
@="5000000000000000005034"

4) THIS WILL WORK!

i just copied and pasted this from another forum but it works on mine no problem. in the txt above where you see "********************" put in your serial there and all should be fine

the only thing that made it work for me was to lower the desktop resolution to 1024x768 before launching the game, since the game won´t launch if the desktop resolution is bigger then what the game can handle
